This ties in to the topics about stereotypes and education. We're all at the mercy of our own minds when it comes to... pretty much everything. Whether it's making unjustified assumptions, believing our memories or trusting our senses our minds will fool us all the time. I'm forever reading yet another way in which we get things wrong, and most people aren't aware of the most basic things like inattention blindness and how our memories are rewritten inaccurately, etc.

Disagreed. Sometimes I can palpably see that I'm smarter that others, yet some other times I find myself a total ignoramus dumbius. So it's not always or never.

I think I'm with Borg here - I'm guilty of both.

I think most of my problem stems form a kind of poor work ethic. I feel that I can do better but my actual work shows that I am not. I just don't know what to do but I am trying to sort myself out.

@Baslisks: That's interesting. Do you think practice or experience will improve your work?
